Florida Counties Are Now Beginning to Mandate Vaccines for Government Workers

In order to curb the spread of the pandemic, some Florida counties are now resorting to mandating vaccines for certain government employees. This has been a long and crazy 18 months.

This Florida County is going to mandate vaccines for employees of the tax collector's office.
